"Kevin's sculptures are quite striking. I love how he captures both geometric shapes and the fluidity and asymmetry of nature."

How to Engineer Two Spinning Components on a Steel Sculpture

The Voice: Hey, Kevin. What are you doing?

Kevin Caron: I'm here in the studio working on my latest metal art sculpture Diamante. As you can see, it's gotten a lot bigger since the last time you guys were here.

Today I'm putting a pin in up there, to hold the top and the bottom of the inner stainless steel diamond so it will stay straight once I install it at the contemporary art gallery.

I've welded a piece of metal hidden at the top, I've also got a little clearance issue to take care of. After that, the inner diamond will rotate inside the outer diamond.

I still have a lot of cleanup work to do yet, and some more welding to do. But this is how she's going to look. What do you think?

I'll get back to work. Bye.
